Yes, it’s a gift that keep on giving . Add 16 more strikes in memory of the 16 victims from San Bernardino , CA..
While it may sound good, it does not really impact those sub-animals. Massive military hardware losses as a result of these bombings only infuriate them even more – every last one of these creatures must be physically eliminated to return normal quality of life to the Western world. In order to accomplish this, the West must be prepared to inflict enormous collateral damage, as these cowardly creatures are hiding among ordinary men, women and children in several Mid-East countries.
